More than 80 million rubles were invested in the construction of six pellet plants. Four of them were launched, and two more, in Zhitkovichi and Mozyr, are completing the installation of technological equipment. New industries have created 75 jobs. As for payback, according to the deputy minister of forestry, even with the most unfavorable pricing policy in international markets, it will be no more than 9 years. But most importantly, export-oriented factories will reduce the stockpiles of illiquid wood and minimize sawmill waste.
